Learning a foreign language is always closely tied to studying the culture. Traditional event devoted to Halloween has been held at the Faculty of Chemistry this week. The event was organized within the framework of the project “Development of the foreign language competence for TSU students”.

First year students and their teachers Aleksandra Soboleva and Anna Sondor immersed into the mysterious and spiritual atmosphere of the “Netherworld”, which can be possible only at the All Hallows’ Eve. The students learned the origins of the holiday, its customs and traditions, andits main symbols. Movies, songs, puzzles and performances made the event amusing and exciting. Every student took an active part in all the competitions and games, demonstrating his creative and acting abilities to contribute to his team’s score.

The students claimed such an approach to language leaning appealed to them a lot!
